So poorly maintained

I WAS interested to read David Orr's comments: (writes Peter Foster}.

'The canal system across England and Wales is the finest network of industrial heritage in the world, still navigated by boats 250 years after it was built. The creation of the Canal & River Trust ten years ago has been transformational in the way the waterways are cared for—with more people and more diverse communities using them and involved in their care and upkeep than ever before'.

Certainly has

It certainly has been transformational—the canal system has never been so poorly maintained and in such dire straits!

Hopefully the new chairman will be able to do something to remedy this.
